This is a superb DAC offering the best of both tube and solid state. I feel it is the best DAC under $6000 available today. It can do quad rate dsd and has an excellent pre-amplifier for direct to amp. connections. In fact with some NOS tubes I felt that the pre-amp section easily rivaled many tube pre-amplifiers upto the $5K range. So why am I selling? I have too many DAC's. See my other ad. for the nuprime DAC10.
Original box, packaging & accessories available. Please note, the unit weighs 13kg, so shipping is entirely the risk of the buyer - I am not going to assume any responsibility for shipping related damages, since I am providing original shipping boxes. I will provide a long video of the unit working and playing in my system, better yet serious buyers are welcome to my house for a demo. and pick up. The unit is in a 9/10 condition aesthetically and 10/10 functionally.
Coming to pricing, I really love this unit, so I am going to be fairly firm on price. Indian price for new unit is 3.2 lac, US price is $4000 (2.7 lac at Rs.66 fx rate). I am expecting 1.75 lac plus shipping (I will ship only blue dart via air) which I feel is very fair. Used units sell on Audiogon for about $2200 - $2800. cary.jpg
Also I had reviewed this DAC for Hifitoday. Please see it here :https://www.hifitoday.com/cary-200ts-digital-to-analog-converter-review/
There are many other rave reviews on the net, please google.
Cheers,
Sid
 

BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

I got a few PM's etc, but nothing translated into a sale, so I am dropping price to 1.7 lac (plus shipping). I have owned may DAC's in the last 3-4 years and this is at the top. Only selling because I upgraded to a DAC 2.5 times the price of this unit. Also for FM's who pick up at my residence I will drop another 5 k off the price. So at 1.65 lac for pickup it is an excellent deal for a 4x DSD tube DAC/preamp, especially since the dollar is at 68.

This is my last offer, will close the ad in a few weeks.

Thanks for looking. I have decided to keep the DAC, especially with the Rupee depreciation no point in selling at a low price for the sake of selling it. Will enjoy it, planning to get a few pairs of nos tubes and deploy in my main system as an alternate tube based DAC.
Mods. kindly close the ad.
Cheers,
Sid
